Pours surprisingly clear, with a light yellow/amber tint. The head disappears rather quickly, faster than I thought it would.
Smell is rather innocent, with no real big flavors coming out at first.
First sip is..interesting. At first, it doesn't really come out to you as very different from any other beer. But there are things to this that are...different than what you usually taste in a beer. I'd have to say that this beer is really a story about subtlety. It's in the ingredients that you really find what makes this so special. And although I do enjoy the beer, I probably wouldn't pick it over a six pack of coffee stout or barleywine. Still, with such a history behind it, you really should treat yourself to it sometime.
